Er3 flashes hot water will not reach set point


Had this happen to me before, if you have hot water from the boiler going in and out of the boiler mate and the temps are not rising within the hot water means more than likely you may need to remove exchanger and clean sediment off element, basically sediment creates a blanket over the heat source causing poor thermal conductivity. Things to check before removing heat exchanger

- outlet temp of boiler water to aquamate -inlet temp of boiler water to aqua mate= 20-30'F if low then bad thermal transfer or poor water movement
-make sure sensor is reading properly
- get boiler temp higher to speed up thermal gain in water heater

AMTROL Boiler Mate no hot water


You might have bad faucet cartridge or check valve.
Possibly a clogged line.
Contact amtrol info@amtrol.com to hear them suggest calling local technician
Otherwise Amtrol does not post service information or service manuals.
Post question on pro water heater forum to hear them suggest a few things before you call local service technician.

Use search feature on forum above, before calling local service technician
Read suggested answers at fixya before calling local plumber.
Call amtrol and ask why they do not post service manuals or service information when so many promoters are selling the product.

Wh 9L amtrol water heater..the water temp is too hot.. the heater is 10 yrs old is it possible to remove the temp probe and clean?


Amdrol makes indirect-fired water heater that gets heat from a boiler
http://www.amtrol.com/boilermate.htm

1) Pdf manual on amdrol website show a mixing valve that mixes cold water with the hot water so water temperature going to faucet stays the same:
http://www.amtrol.com/pdf/MC10169%20BMconstantempflyer.pdf
You set the temperature of the mixing valve.
You can also set up 2 sets of pipes ... one is connected to mixing valve that goes to sinks and tubs. The other pipe bypasses mixing valve sends hotter water to washing machine.

2) The manual for Amdrol:
http://www.amtrol.com/pdf/9040-586%2001_09%20BoilerMate%20Indirect%20IO.pdf
The new models has a temperature sensor that plugs into digital readout.
This is a thermistor sensor wire that can be ordered as repair part

3) Amdrol has e-mail address:
info@amtrol.com

4) You can post your question on a water heater forum

Not heating water hot enough or as much water.


You probably have a bad heating element. Probably the upper element.

Amtrol water heater WH-7P gets barely warm water


From what you are saying it sounds like an issue with either a circulator pump or a zone valve. It depends on what type of system you have ... if you have a circulator pump that only runs the Amtrol then that is probably bad. If you have a zone valve system then it is probably the zone valve if you still have heat for the rest of the house. If you have no space heating then it is probably the circulator pump.

My water heater is buzzing then shutting off. (no hot water)


the power interrupt switch is detecting a short in one of the heating coils.  With the power off remove the side cover pull out the insulation and disconnect the wire to one of the heating elements.  Make sure it isn't touching anything and turn the power back on and see if the problem continues.  If it does reconnect the wire and do the same to the other heating element.  Be careful.  If you feel uncomfortable doing this call an electrician.
